Renowned music and arts organization JAZZ RE:FRESHED will bring its annual festival JAZZ RE:FEST online this year, as part of a digital strategy to keep UK jazz thriving while venues are closed, and continuing to support musicians whose performance opportunities have dwindled as a result of the global pandemic.

Brought to you in association with MQA and Bluesound, JAZZ RE:FEST 2020 will be taking place between noon to 4 p.m. EST on Sunday, Aug. 23. The virtual showcase, taking place at The Mill studios behind closed doors, will be streamed on the Jazz re:freshed YouTube channel. The performances will also be broadcast, at the same time, in MQA studio-quality audio via Bluesound's BluOS Controller app directly into the homes of Bluesound's hi-res speaker owners. Owners of other BluOS Enabled devices from NAD Electronics, DALI Loudspeakers, and Monitor Audio, will also be able to enjoy the exclusive MQA audio stream through the BluOS Controller app. 

The amazing four-hour show will feature performances from breakthrough and established acts including Binker Golding, Sahra Gure, Steam Down, Ms Maurice, Golden Mean, Jas Kayser and Anthony Joseph, bringing the festival's signature atmosphere and excitement directly into viewers' and listeners' homes. JAZZ RE:FEST is an annual one-day festival produced by JAZZ RE:FRESHED, celebrating jazz and jazz-inspired music and culture. Usually hosted at Brighton Dome, the festival was recently cancelled due to COVID-19 related venue closures and will now take place behind closed doors at The Mill studios in London. As a not-for-profit organisation, Jazz re:freshed will be encouraging donations on its YouTube channel from festival viewers.

Adam Moses, co-founder of Jazz re:freshed says: "Despite barriers, we are still on a mission to celebrate a genre and musicians whose performance opportunities are severely reduced right now, and to showcase the incredibly diverse, colourful, expressive and creative world of jazz music and alternative culture. The festival has been the perfect launchpad for pioneering artists such as Moses Boyd and SEED Ensemble, and it's great to return with a mix of fresh talent and established acts, and with the support of MQA and Bluesound to deliver the performances remotely in studio-quality resolution."

Mike Jbara, MQA CEO adds: "MQA is on a mission to help artists connect with fans by allowing them to hear the full musical performance, as if they were there. The performers showcased at Jazz re:freshed events are brimming with originality and energy, and their artistry is fully revealed in this way. We are proud to be a small part of the events imagined by Jazz re:freshed."

The full festival will be streamed live from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday 23rd August via and in MQA audio to Bluesound speaker owners and BluOS Enabled devices.
